Distances from the source case for two Mycobacterium tuberculosis strains associated with tuberculosis outbreaks: a RFLP 0.0142 and b RFLP 0.0728. The x-axis shows the time interval between diagnosis in the source case and identification of a case with an identical RFLP type (temporal distance), while the y-axis shows the number of single-nucleotide differences between Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates associated with the two cases (genetic distance). These distances are not linearly correlated. RFLP restriction fragment-length polymorphism
